I'm not a big fan of the Olympic Games, or maybe it's just that I don't care. I don't think I even followed what was going on -- except when reading some newspaper at the airport. But a friend of mine got annoyed that France wasn't really well-positioned in the medal count: we're currently ranked 11th or 7th, depending how you count things.

However, getting annoyed can lead to amusing results. He took the official results and made a script to compute the medal count for the European Union. And guess what? We're first, and with a large gap between the EU and the second country. Go see the true medal count :-)
